Double-blow to ObamaCare: Enrollment down, GOP wins Fla. race

Good news about ObamaCare is hard to come by these days.

New numbers show just about 4.2 million signed up for the health care plan through the end of February making it unlikely the White House will reach its 6-7 million enrollee estimate by the end of March.

And in a special election, in Florida’s 13th district, Republican David Jolly wins, which could spell big trouble for the Dems in midterm elections. Jolly ran for the seat of the late Rep. Bill Young. As Jolly thanked his “loving God” in his acceptance speech, Twitter thanked ObamaCare.

 

Former DNC comms director and Obamaite, Brad Woodhouse, pooh-poohs the idea, saying that one race does not a trend make.

Final numbers: 48.5 percent Jolly;  46.7 percent Alex Sink.
